This isn't a big deal, but Qt itself allows to choose from multiple installed multimedia plugins through QT_MULTIMEDIA_PREFERRED_PLUGINS.

It is odd that the port imposes a limitation that only one plugin, ALSA or PulszeAudio, can be installed at a time.

That sounds indeed reasonable.
I'll look into it.

  multimedia/qt5-multimedia: allow PULSE and ALSA options to coexist

  In r451940 this was made exclusive, to follow the internal build system
  of Qt. However, nowadays, the two backends are coinstallable again.
